    Just curious as to the total that you carry on your trailer/

    I carry

    1 six gallon can of straight gas and
    2 2.5 gallon cans of 100:1 Amsoil/gas mix

    To go a little further

    4 gallons in the Walker
    5 gallons in the Toro (I think)

    That makes it about 20 gallons when topped off.

    I have a six gallon container but I never use it anymore. I can easily make it through the day with Lazer filled up. I have one 2 1/2 gallon container of mix that usually lasts 2-3 days.

    I fill the Walker and use a five gallon can just in case I run low. 3 gallon mix that takes me through a couple of days.

    I only carry a 2.5 gal can of about 40 to one mix. and that fuels line trimmer and hedge trimmers.

    the lesco has about a 5 gal tank on it and it's hard for me to run all of that out in a day.

    I fill the mowers up each night and top off a 5-gallon gas can. I also keep one 2 & half gallon container of mixed gas. Nothing is worse then running out of gas!

    You get thrown out of the truck and must ride on the trailer.

    I carry all my straight gas in my mowers. I fill them up every after noon after I get done for the day. My mix is carried in a 2 1/2 gal. can and will last a few days. If I need my 21" mower I fill it before I leave for the day and it will last for the few small jobs I need it. The less fuel cans I carry the less chance of a spill and waste.:D
